"Rumors are flying after the Pirate Bay's website took a dive on Monday just as news broke of a raid by Swedish police on its hosting company PRQ – but the group says the two facts are not related.
"Dear internet. We have not been raided. We are not shutting down. We like turtles, waffles and you," the group said on its Facebook page. "Sorry for not fulfilling your pirate needs tonight. It's ok if you cheat on us with another site, just once. We know that you still love us, deep down in your cursed pirate heart."
There is, however, something more suspicious here:
Where's the Original SlashDot story that covered the Raid and Fall of the Torrent Sites? It also seems to have disappeared from the Stories list in the last few moments.
Are these two events linked in some way? Has SlashDot been censored somehow? Was the story Too Hot for SlashDot?
Let's all watch and see what happens next!
